Judges 6 - Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary on the Bible

Resources » Commentaries » Judges » Chapter 6 » exegesis

Israel oppressed by Midianites.

Israel's sin was renewed, and Israel's troubles were repeated. Let all that sin expect to suffer. The Israelites hid themselves in dens and caves; such was the effect of a guilty conscience. Sin dispirits men. The invaders left no food for Israel, except what was taken into the caves. They prepared that for Baal with which God should have been served, now God justly sends an enemy to take it away in the season thereof. (Jdg 6:7-10)
